I won’t ask or make forever promises
lest time finds us wading through arrears.
But life’s too precious for counting the losses
of things left unsaid on uncertainty's frontiers.

And all those days' cares that were spent with you,
your lips lingering on mine in the afterglow,
now seem restless, demanding their due.
Branding my restraint a betrayal, bemoaning the woe.

So I’ll wrap my intents in the designs of a cypher
With its key underneath the import of my Name
desired in every lexicon; should you choose to decipher
or be left entangled, if you never felt the same.
